Orthopedic Sports Health


What Is Orthopedic Sports Health?

Sports health – also known as sports medicine – is not just for competitive athletes. Nearly everyone can benefit from orthopedic sports health – from student athletes and weekend warriors to those recovering from accidents or injuries.

A sports medicine specialty means a doctor studied family medicine and then pursued additional education and practice in sports medicine.

Aurora Health Care’s doctors and therapists provide a full range of orthopedic sports health services. Our approach incorporates physical therapy as well as integrative care like chiropractic, acupuncture and massage.
